    We have a decent squad. Most of the guys that have left were not involved for most of the season. Even Drey missed a chunk of the season & took a while to get up to speed.
    I have said previously that we may need a winger & midfielder but like mainstand I don't think we will make a signing untill January

    Both same age group & background. Miserable goes with the territory. Or shall we say telling it as it is.

    Exactly. The dancing & joy at the demise of Hearts over on P & B is a bit over the top but understandable.
    If Budge had appealed to the clubs delve of justice rather than with threats,she may have had more success.

    Did just see a paper that said the proposal would have lifted the bottom 2 up to the same as the twelfth placed team. 
     
    12th     £1.125m
    13th     £0.562m
    14th     £0.475m
    increase to same as 12th £1.2m
    split over 12 clubs would be £100k so not £30k.

    For the first 2 weeks the players will be pretty much working on fitness and ball skills and doing very little in the way of shape and tactics, that will come when they start looking at friendlies and closed doors games.

    Leslie Deas says SPFL board should impose reconstruction if more than 50% voted for it. His also threatening legal action to prevent season starting along with other threats.
    Oh ,and Anderson may withdraw £3 million.
    I think these bullying & threats should see Hearts expelled.

    Yes, that literally is blocking promotion.
     
    We basically already had this scenario when we had the SPL. There was one smaller "elite" group of clubs that divided the wealth amongst themselves and dictated the terms of promotion. Your idea is for there to be 20 clubs instead of the 10 or 12 we had back then, but other than that it seems to be pretty much the same (there was even a plan for an SPL 2 back then, which would have brought it even closer to your suggestion, but it never happened).
    It didn't work. That's why the SPL merged back with the SFL. The SPL lasted for 15 years and during that time the standard of football gradually dropped, Scotland didn't qualify for a single tournament, and the only clubs to have any sort of success in Europe were (as usual) the Old Firm. 
    Personally I don't want a system that is geared towards making the rich clubs richer and trying to hold all the money at the top end. As a St Johnstone fan, I don't really see why I should consider Celtic or Rangers to be any more important or valuable to Scottish football than Albion Rovers or Forfar. If anything, I'd favour directing funding towards the smaller clubs rather than contribute to increasing the Old Firm's stranglehold over our game.

    12 colt teams in tier 5.
    Is that not the same as an under 21 league that we used to have before they brought in some kind of elite system & some brave heart shite.

    It is, you actively want to kick out clubs, virtually killing them off, because they're not full time.
    Why not just close off the top flight? Split the prize money between 12 instead of 42.
    Why even stop there? Cut it down to the 6 best supported sides, surely that makes the most sense financially?

    Baaa baaa! You should convert to Aberdeen. The guy has a chance to talk saints up. Put a f****** positive spin rather than negative.
    Should have been;
    ”we are delighted by the calibre of candidate. It just goes to show that the hard work is paying off as we are being rightly recognised as a great football club to work for that has had lots of success in the past ten years. Candidates know they are coming to a great club and that is why we have quality applicants.”
     
    instead we get;
    ”why the f*** anyone would want to manage this club is beyond me. If you are a good manager f*** knows why you have applied here.
    Oh aye, and one more thing, if you are applying for this job you better to be willing to give up your days off and evenings to work in the community - dinny even submit a CV unless you are willing to work overtime for free. Right! Got it, son!!”

    He's young, inexperienced and had a difficult year.
    I'm hopeful that he'll come on a fair bit this year, although he might be unlucky with a lot of teams downsizing their squads next season.

    I don’t know. I don’t know how either of them actually drive on the road. Lewis might be an awful driver, JHQ might be great. 
     
    I do remember Lewis pranging a super car in Monte Carlo a few years ago. I can’t imagine Lewis does much driving nowadays. He’s likely driven everywhere!
     
    The only thing I can say for certain is that Lewis is a better racing driver!

    Cagey that is old at 12. They start taking them.in significantly younger now. Think this year they will be taking in kids born in 2013and 2014.  
    The kids are far too young and should be left to play with pals but they go in there and think they have made it. The SFA need to limit the number of kids that these clubs are allowed to take in for training at youth level.
    It would be a knock on effect with kids there going to other premiership clubs and some of there kids going down to academy level and kids that should be nowhere near pro youth going back to playing with pals in  youth clubs. 
    That would help these lower league clubs better than playing in their league.
